County teams go two-for-three

Polar Bears, Huskies win; Bees lose

Playing with the Associated Press’ No. 1 ranking for the first time, Fairmont Senior’s girls’ basketball team had a target on its back.

But in a 69-42 win at Preston, the Polar Bears were the ones doing the shooting.

Kaden Whaley scored 22 points, Emily Stoller had 12 and Ty Horton added 10 to help the top-ranked team in the state improve to 15-1.

Kelsey Morrone added six points and Jasmine Johnson pitched in four.

Fairmont Senior coach Corey Hines said that while it the team enjoyed winning with the No. 1 ranking, they aren’t finished yet.

“It’s nice to know some of our hard work is paying off,” he said. “But the ultimate goal is to be No. 1 at the end of the season.”

The Polar Bears jumped out to a 17-10 lead in the first quarter and extended it to 33-20 by halftime.

Preston responded, however, in the third quarter, outscoring Fairmont Senior, 13-10.

But in the fourth, the Polar Bears held the Knights to just four points to put the game away.

“We turned it up defensively in the fourth quarter,” Hines said.

Fairmont Senior will be back on the court Thursday at Lewis County.

North Marion 77

Lewis County 49

North Marion’s girls basketball team overcame a sluggish first half to thump Lewis County Tuesday night, 77-49.

After a back-and-forth first half, the visiting Huskies went into the break up by just three points. Then in the second half, they went on a 26-10 run in the third quarter to put the game away and improve their record to 17-2.

It wasn’t the first time the Huskies started slow only to finish strong. Just last week, they led Lincoln by single a point at halftime before opening up a double-digit lead in the third quarter.

“We’ve been a second half team lately,” said North Marion coach Mike Parrish. “We’ve got to start being a four-quarter team.”

Sophomore Megan Haller paced North Marion with 21 points. She was joined in double figures by freshman guard Presley Tuttle, who finished with 18 points, four assists and five steals.

Noca Singleton (eight points, six blocks), Cara Egress (seven points), Anna Marie Moscufo (six points), Mackensy Hess (four points), Christa Tobin (three points), Taylor Wells (three points), Brittany Sigley (two points), Claudia Sheets (two points), Taylor Trowbridge (two points) and Andrea Nicholas (one point) also pitched in to the help the Huskies pick up their 13th consecutive win.

Parrish said that he and the Huskies aren’t worried about the streak, but instead their next game today at Elkins.

“We never really talk about the streak, we just talk about the next team,” he said. “We’ve got to go home, go to bed and wake up ready for another game.”
